“Beautiful view ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

I visited this restaurant on Fathers Day after spending the day a the beautiful beach Jobos. We arrived late afternoon to have appetizers and drinks which were both good. It has an interior restaurant with ac in case it's to hot but late afternoon it's the perfect place to be to enjoy the sunset. The exterior is very nice with big wood decks overlooking the ocean you have to remember this move a little slower so go with the flow and enjoy the view with a nice drink or a glass of wine.

“Limited late night options in Isabela”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Pretty good food, but we got there too late to enjoy the view. The service staff was slow, but they had a balladeer singing with his guitar, wandering by the tables. The food was pretty good with a heavy Puerto Rican flavor. (Note: The women's room lights weren't working . . . so be careful in there.)

“Only for drinks...if you are patient!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Not impressed with service, beautiful place to go for a date with only drinks. Food is average for locals, short of staff, bartender tried to please everyone but it did not worked for me. On a Friday, local holiday, manager should have more staff at lunch at least.

“Great views and drinks, ok food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Really nice spot to get some drinks and food during sunset. Sit at the bar, which is on a deck almost overhanging the water. You can order food and enjoy the views. We tried the homemade sangria, which was excellent. The empanada app was delicious, and the mufungo was decent. My wife ordered mahi mahi, which was terrible. The most over cooked piece of fish I've ever tasted. Someone near us ordered a whole fish that looked great. Stick to recommendations folks have reviewed here for food. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area for some drinks and a decent dinner.

Service was slow, but it didn't bother us. This is to be expected in PR and in the Caribbean in general.

“Quality with a Great View!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Went here after a long day at the Jobos beach. The place have a nice bar in front of the shore with a perfect view of Jobos beach. The food and attention was great. You can eat a nice elegant meal, as easy as you can have a hamburger with a great quality. I had a burger and it was real quality meat, very well prepared.
